Plano TX Fruit Flies Patrol and September 2019 Update
Fruit flies are tiny flying insects. They tend to infest homes having ripe, rotting or decayed fruit and veggies in the open (on counters or in
uncovered trash cans.) They are also attracted to fermented beverages like wine and beer as well as rotting debris in drains and garbage disposals.
The insect may enter your home through gaps around doors or windows or be introduced to it through produce infested with flies or their larvae.
Fruit flies don’t bite but every step should be taken to eliminate them because they visit unsanitary areas (garbage piles, sewers, outdoor
drains) where they pick up dangerous pathogens and bacteria on their bodies. They potentially contaminate anything they land on. If you
suspect they are in a drain, cover it with clear tape with tiny air holes. If you find flies stuck to the underside, you have found the offending site.
Your steps to control this pest are:
- Clean drains with boiling hot water, baking soda, vinegar, then boiling hot water in that order. (For the garbage disposal, start with
- In affected rooms set traps with small cups of apple cider vinegar covered in plastic with small holes poked through.
- Wash all fruits and vegetables before leaving out on the counter.
- Do NOT put chemicals down drains. That is illegal!
The female is able to lay 500 eggs which will hatch in 24 to 30 hours. Their rapid breeding makes the species difficult to eradicate. If you need help with this or any pest, call Safe Pro Pest Control. We’re here to serve you!
